How I Made An Extra $8600 in 2016

Picture

As many of you know, each month I post how much extra cash I made and where it came from.

At the end of each year, I also give an annual review, to let people see how much can be made with a few hours a night in various platforms.

Each month, my annual review still tops my most visited posts, so I’ll take that as a note that people enjoy reading it!

So, I’m happy to announce that in 2016, I brought in an extra $8609.98 in spending money!

This is $2577.93 more than the $6032.05 of extra money in 2015
and
